Red's Savoy Pizza - Uptown Minneapolis

FYI, Red's Savoy has opened in the old Galooney's space at 24th and Hennepin on Tuesday. I have never had their pizza, but know that there are some admirers of it on the board.

(I still haven't had their pizza. I stopped in for a slice, but they don't sell them. RIP Galooney's.)

    1. Galooney's will be missed. I loved getting their pizza with garlic and feta on it - pungency at its best.

      1. I'm intrigued to see how this plays out in Uptown. Somehow, Red's Savoy seems inherently St. Paul'ish to me.

          In my opinion it is a bad move not to sell slices, at least for a while so people can check out the quality.

          1. re: faith

            In their defense, they said they were selling "mini-pizzas" for $5-6. Not the same as a slice, though.

            All of the slices in the Uptown area seem to be disappearing, save Soho Pizza on Hennepin between 25 1/2 street and 26th Street. It's not one of my favorites. Any pizza-by-the-slice places that I'm missing in the Lyn/Lake - Uptown are?

              Whole Foods Calhoun has them.

                Uptown Pizza has them. Lake and Grand. We really like their pizza.

                  Thanks! They're just beyond my normal circle of pizza consciousness - Dulono's is on the boundary - but I will seek them out.

                    I'd second Uptown pizza. I've enjoyed their gyro pizza since I was young.

              2. re: The Dairy Queen

                Probably due to the "up-scaling" of Uptown.

              3. So sad that Galooney's is gone. Personally, I'm not a fan of Red's Savoy. I'm not sure what the attraction is. Galooney's was one of my favorites in the Twin Cities; to be replaced by Red's Savoy is, in my opinion, adding salt to the wound.

                  I wonder how Red's will work in that place. Will they board up the windows, import some grumpy old seventysomething waitresses, and occasionally crash a car into the storefront? That should capture the ambience.
